Shearing Day

before...

during..

and after! Then there was fresh air, sunshine and a refreshing light rain!


Thank You everyone for your time and work at Shearing 2009!
Our helpers this year were daughter Kelly and husband Clay, neighbor Lorna and my Mother.
And of course, a big thank-you to Farmer Bob for building handling pens and shoots and many hours of preparation. Last but not least the greatly talented and gentle shearer Cliff M.

What a difference after shearing. I bet they weigh a lot less after their hair cuts.

They look like they're enjoying feeling cooler. Your grass is so green and lush looking.

Wow! Those before pictures are incredible! Hard to believe they have that much fleece.
